    Opposition supporters and security forces have clashed yet again over fears President Alpha Conde is trying to extend his rule for a third term.

    He recently postponed a planned referendum to amend the constitution which would allow him to prolong his time in office.

    Continued protests which started in mid-October have rocked the West African country.
